Oh! and by the way, my dad would like his orange & brown polyester plaid bell bottoms back. He thought my mom had thrown those out in the early 80's icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

It's so hard choosing because each are so evenly matched as far as their talent, you can see by the last votes. Each time it's close, so HARD to choose. Both are fantastic!!!!

It looks like a re-vote might be necessary!

I'm only 26 and when I went to prom there was a girl with goldfish in her platform shoes icon_confused.gif So if they did it in 2000 they probably did it in the 70's too icon_lol.gif

OH no! I also didn't see the mistake about the picture posting and numbering, and I've voted for the wrong one too!!! I somehow think the result of this one isn't going to be fair/correct as there will be lots of wrong votes cast icon_sad.gif!

this couldn't be any more of a nail biter!!!

i know there's been a lot of confusion about the numbers and voting. maybe next time instead of calling it #1 and #2, we could call it...like orange bouquet and colorful bouquet, that way there's no mixup.

this is exciting. anything can happen in 2 days!!!

Very close race!

Yankeegal and kneadacookie, where do you guys purchase your cookie cutters from? Your cookies are FANTASTIC!

Thanks everyone for all of your support-this is going to be a nail-biter!!!

Agent-Most of my specialty cookies I hand cut..but I do order from the following companies:
www.cookiecutter.com
www.kitchengifts.com
www.coppergifts.com
www.countrykitchensa.com
www.fancyflours.com
I know there was a new thread going with a few more...

i also would say that probably 90% of my cookies are hand cut with laminated pictures. there's an endless selection that way.

I have no idea, but whoever wins, I think there should be a rematch! I wonder how many people voted for the wrong one since the ywere backwards! A few people have posted in this thread that they voted for the wrong one not knowing! As close as it is, I think there should be a rematch to be fair! There's only a 3 vote difference, and those could have easily been mixed up votes.

I wholeheartedly agree... this is all just for fun, but still, you want it to be fair, and you don't want that feeling of 'winning on a technicality' you know?

You're BOTH winners in my book! (or should I say oven! icon_lol.gif ) Both entries are FABULOUS, and showcase both of your amazing talents! Thanks for putting in the time and effort to share them with all of us.
